You don't even know yet how ME will play on that box. If it does, cygwin

Cygwin has no 64-bit support, ME has no 64-bit support. You could build a
cross compiler targeting your hardware, but it would be up to you to make it
work. First, you probably want to try out 32-bit software built with the
standard cygwin port of gcc, using the various architecture options, like
-march=athlon, -march=pentium4 -mfpmath=sse
